DIY: DOPE MEN SEW LATEST STYLE

DIY SWEAT SUIT INSPIRED BY DESIGNER JERRY LORENZO

Checkout one of my dope sweat suit and latest DIY project…

Yo whats up!

If you have been following my social media closely there’s a small chance you’ve gotten a glimpse of my “Fear Of God” inspired sweat suit I made. For the longest I’ve been a big fan of the designer Jerry Lorenzo and a lot of his work. Lately I had my eyes on his sweats that I personally can’t afford, but I can make them myself…lol!

I used two different patterns to pull off the look: (1) McCall’s 7637  (2) McCall’s 7486

PATTERN REVIEW

Pattern: McCall 7637
Pattern Description:  Track Jacket
Pattern Sizing: Small
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done? Yes
Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I didn’t like the amount go ease that came in the sleeve.
Fabric Used: Double Knit & Rib Knit
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I took out 2.5″ of ease out the sleeve and I continued the front zipper all the way through the collar.
Would you sew it again? Yes
Would you recommend it to others? Yes

    I love how your sweat suit turned out. I have sooo many questions. Where did you get the camo knit for the lining? I haven’t been able to find any near me and haven’t seen any online in the green pattern.

    Where did you get your ribbing? That’s another thing I haven’t been able to find.

    Also, could you give more info on your mods to the pants pattern ,please. I didn’t see the drop crotch piece in the line drawing. And how did you draft the stripes into the side? Did just going down a size give you that fit? Because yours look more fitted than then the pattern.

    I know these are a lot of questions. But I really liked how your suit turned out and would appreciate any extra information you could give. Maybe make a utube video/ sewalong 😉
